Cooler Day.

Monday, September 08, 2014

I walked up here to the library on Sunday, and as hot as it was, it wasn't open for 2 more hours. No place to sit, or any shade I walked back home. I was a mess by the time I got there.

I am just so complete. It doesn't matter what I do or do not have. I am complete. By my birthday next March, I should be completely set here. I will have the basics, I do not need, like obviously everyone else here, wall to wall furnishings. I like the simple look.

I will talk to you later. Love

    The more stuff you have the more you have to clean and keep up. Simple is good. Sorry it was so hot and the library was clos emoticon emoticon ed.

Apartment

Saturday, September 06, 2014

It has been 1 full week since I moved into my apartment. I do not have much, but by the holidays I may surprise myself. I am so at peace. Here at the library. I hate paying $50 for internet, but I will probably break down and do it. It has been so HOT here, I haven't been out of the apartment.

Hope you are all well. I will get here tomorrow. Supposed to cool down. Love

    I am such a believer in recycling. If you can, get to a Thrift shop. Like the great prophet Macklemore says, "One mans trash is another mans Come-up". There are so many ways to get the things that are needed without breaking the bank. Soon it will be cooling down and the walks to the library will be a joyful outing instead of a sticky drudge.

I'm so happy you're loving your new-found freedom

    JOYCE, AT LEAST YOU ARE IN YOUR OWN SPACE NOW AND HAVE YOUR OWN LIFE. ALSO, YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY FOR THE INTERNET BUT IT WILL BE WELL WORTH IT. JUST THINK; NOW YOU CAN CONTACT EVERYONE WITHOUT FEAR OF THE PHONE NOT CONNECTING. GET THAT WEBCAM WORKING AND WE CAN THEN CHAT FACE TO FACE. LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT.

Home Sweet Home

Saturday, August 30, 2014

Spent all day yesterday being busy. I am in my efficiency apartment and I can tell you I am so happy. I was tearing boxes down until 10 p.m. and putting stuff away.

I couldn't believe I could move around without worrying about disturbing anyone. Also no T.V. IT IS SO PEACEFUL. I hate TV except for weather and news. Someday I will take the plunge, but not for a while. Maybe by Christmas.

It is to get up to 90 degrees today, so I am going to close for now, before I have to walk HOME IN ALL THAT HEAT. LOVE JOYCE

    I'm so happy for you!!! I really understand what you mean by being able to move about without worrying about other people. When I am alone, I LOVE being able to listen to my own music, my own inner voice or my own silence!
Enjoy creating your own space. It is your refuge from the world, your pallet for your brush and an extension of your being. emoticon

4 Days

Monday, August 25, 2014

I am pretty well packed up, ready to go. Excited isn't the word. I can go out and go places that I have to walk to catch transportation. Feeling like my life is starting over.

I will be free. So happy. Knowing my spark friends are happy for me. Oh, it took me 15 minutes to find out how to get to my spark page. I hate change, love the idea of my own place.

Love to all.

    You can do this and it will be a new start. We all have changes but there are benefits when you can get round and do what you want for yourself. Yes we are all happy for you. You have worked so hard for everyone and now it is time to do for your self.

MOVING DAY

Thursday, August 21, 2014

8 Days and counting and hoping for no rain, at least in the morning or until 2 p.m.

I am so excited, all my stuff is in boxes in the living room. I can't believe it, Freedom at last. To be able to go out a door and be on a bus route or walk and get a Coleman's Fish Sandwich. Browse thru all the little stores and shops down there. I am just thrilled.

Can you all tell I am THRILLED. I want to shout it out on the roof top.

Have a Lovely Day!
